The best-selling vehicle for Mercedes is expected to face several major improvements.
A little over six years ago the new generation Mercedes C-Class launched as the first car to run on the Compact Rear Design. That carried a substantial weight loss of about 100 kilograms (220 pounds) relative to its predecessor. The new W206 will further tweak the MRA formulation to improve packaging. And potentially remove additional fat as a result of allowing greater use of lightweight materials.
Even as the technology will be a gradual progression of the underpinnings of today. So will the architecture of the exterior. We’ve seen our fair share of designs of the luxury sedan. And all of them gave us the feeling that the new C-Class would bring a little refinement to the existing version.
Having seen the Sedan A-Class and the newly facelifted E-Class. We don’t need a crystal ball to get an understanding. So, how the styling should revamp for the sedan that fits in Mercedes ‘massive range of them.
What not seen from the corresponding renderings the interior. But the spy video added at the bottom gives us a hint as to how the dashboard will change for the next-generation model.
For the mid-cycle upgrade, the new model got the entirely digital instrument panel. And it’s not all that shocking the concept has no actual dials. The panel frame, though, is distinct, and more in line with that of its larger sedan relatives.
While the dashboard is largely hidden by a large piece of plastic, you can say the infotainment feature does not stand out like a sore thumb anymore. That’s because a touchscreen mounted lower in the center console would replace the phone. So it claimed it has a much wider diagonal.
The latest S-Class arriving later this year will bring the dramatic shift in style, as Mercedes announced with the Vision EQS last September.
